Sarcoidosis streamThe University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Multidisciplinary Sarcoidosis Clinic has joined the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research as a founding member in their Global Sarcoidosis Alliance.

This new network of specialty clinics in the United States and globally creates a robust network for patient and clinician education, innovates sharing of information to advance new therapies for treatment of sarcoidosis, and creates collaborative referral networks to connect patients with complex sarcoidosis with specialists familiar with their disease.

“We are excited to contribute to this new alliance and push the margin forward in understanding and eventually curing sarcoidosis for thousands of patients in Alabama and worldwide,” said Joseph Barney, M.D., professor in the UAB Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine and director of UAB’s Multidisciplinary Sarcoidosis Clinic.

The FSR Global Sarcoidosis Clinic Alliance brings together sarcoidosis clinics and hospitals committed to finding a cure and offering evidence-based, patient-centric care for those living with sarcoidosis. Alliance members will benefit from innovative resources, sustainable programming, and tools to accelerate treatment, research and the continuum of patient care.
